Parent Information

Our class will be using a couple of different tools to stay organized and up to date this year. It is the students' responsibility to use these tools regularly to ensure they are completing all assignments in a timely manner. These tools are also easily accessible for yourselves, as parents, to stay in the loop regarding your child's assignments and due dates as well as important events and activities.

 First, I have created a Scholantis class website that students will be using on a daily basis to work on and submit assignments, check due dates and access our class calendar. This website can be accessed from any device connected to the internet, which should make it very easy for students to stay up to date and on top of their homework at all times. We have reviewed in class how to access and utilize the site and I would strongly recommend that you have your child log in and show you the website as the majority of their assignments will be completed right there. 

​The second tool that will be used frequently is Remind. This is a free app that you can add to your smartphone that will allow you to receive reminder messages pertaining to homework and events happening at the school. Students have been shown how to access our class on the app, so they can help guide you through the process. To join our class, text the message @mmeston to 306-992-7077. If you prefer to receive emails, you can send a blank email to mmeston@mail.remind.com.

My class website (Mme St.Onge 7/8) will be my primary means of communication, but I will also be using Remind to send short messages and reminders. I will be posting events and due dates for assignments on the calendar on this site for you to access as well.

I have stressed to the class the importance of taking initiative to use these tools, as this provides a way to keep in touch with what is going on in our classroom and school. The responsibility is on students to have these conversations with their parents, so they can check to see what is going on in our class and school community in whatever way works best for them.

I have posted my parent information package on the Homepage under Shared Documents.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime by sending me an email to e.st.onge@rcsd.ca or by calling me at the school.
